Weekend sport mega-gallery – June 18

With a number of league resuming after the Queen's Birthday long weekend last week, our Border Mail photographers were once again hard at work across the region.

Check out the best of James Wiltshire and Mark Jesser's efforts last weekend – did they snap you?

In the Ovens and Murray, Albury were too good for Wangaratta in their top of the table clash, leaving the Pies pondering how to topple the Tigers juggernaut.

Wangaratta are also on the lookout for a replacement for Josh Porter – the star forward is heading to the US for university soon.

Elsewhere in the O&M, giving Brad St John a rest looks to be paying dividends for the Raiders after they powered past North Albury.

The return of Christian Burgess helped propel the Saints to a crucial win over Wodonga, while Lavington secured some valuable percentage points when they thumped the Wangaratta Rovers.

It was a rough afternoon for Corowa-Rutherglen as Yarrawonga smashed the record for most goals in a half and most goals in a quarter on their way to a nearly 200-point thumping.

In the netball, training to simulate high-pressure situations helped Albury to a close in over Wangaratta, while Yarrawonga, Lavington, North Albury and Wodonga also enjoyed wins.

In the Hume League, Rand-Walbundire-Walla finally worked their way onto the winner's list with a victory over Howlong, while reigning premiers Brock-Burrum crashed Holbrook's 125th anniversary.

Mitta made a statement in their win over Wahgunyah in the Tallangatta league, while Border-Walwa are closing on a return to the Upper Murray finals after defeating Cudgewa on Saturday.

The Albury-Wodonga Bandits made short work of the Melbourne Tigers on Saturday night for their fourth-straight win, but the Lady Bandits had weren't quite on the same level.

Coach Brad Chalmers also talked about how import JT Terrell has found his groove since arriving a couple of months ago.

In the NPL, Murray United were able to hang on for a draw against Brunswick City, but will be without Archie Thompson for next week's clash after the star forward was handed a red-card.

Albury Thunder's struggles continued on Sunday afternoon, going down 18-4 to Junee.

Lastly, in AWFA, Myrtleford jumped to top spot with a 2-0 win over Albury United, while Albury City held off a late Wangaratta comeback to record a 4-3 victory.
